Eilaine Roth, American baseball player (AAGPBL), died she was 82.

Eilaine Roth was an outfielder who played from 1948 through 1951 in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Listed at 5' 2", 123 lb., she batted and threw right-handed died she was 82..[1]

(January 17, 1929 – November 1, 2011) 


Born in Michigan City, Indiana, Eilaine Roth was the daughter of Herman and Elsie (née Kumnatzke) Roth. Younger than twin sister Elaine by fifteen minutes, Roth spent four years in the league mainly as a right fielder and pinch-hitter, while her sister was a pitcher for seven years. The twins attended Elston High School, graduating in 1946.[2]
The Roth twins joined the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League in 1948 with the Peoria Redwings. They played together for two years as the "dynamic duo" (″E″ and ″I″), because it worked well for promotion, but when the team folded before the 1951 season, Eilaine was relocated to the Kalamazoo Lassies and Ellaine joined the South Bend Blue Sox. In 1953, the sisters came together again in Kalamazoo.[3]
Her most productive season came in 1950, when she posted career numbers in games played (107), hits (78) and stolen bases (64), while hitting a .202 average. Used sparingly in 1954, she hit .251 (52-for-207) in 79 games.[4]
After leaving the league, Roth played slow-pitch softball in a factory league from 1954 to 1957. She later worked 21 years as an inspector for Upjohn Pharmaceutical Company in Kalamazoo, Michigan.[5]
Eilaine Roth died in Springfield, Michigan, aged 82, following complications from cancer.[1]
